Beyond therapy started as a faith-based therapy center called ICLV Wellness Center with a desire to service the Christian community in Las Vegas. While pursuing her master's degree, Pastor Paul Goulet asked his eldest daughter, Isabelle to open the center. Since 2005, She developed a center that has served countless clients, and trained many students and interns in the community. As the center continued to grow, it was determined that it was time to expand to be a multifaceted center to reach and help more people, which is now called Beyond Therapy, a privately owned center.
Beyond Therapy works to provide the most research based, quality and advanced techniques in therapy to our clients. We train our students and interns to be client and holistically focused. Additionally, we work hand in hand with other great practitioners in town who specialize in nutrition, fitness, medicine and many other areas. We believe in each person's capacity to change and grow as they process through the difficulty's life may bring. Beyond therapy aims to educate each person about what trauma is and how it affects us. Destigmatizing trauma allows our clients to come out of shame and heal in a safe place. All our clinicians are also trained how to integrate faith into their practices. We continue to be a resource to the Christian community as we expand. Our goal is to create safety for our clients to grow and heal. We all have traumas that affect us differently and as a center our goal is to come alongside people in their journey to heal and go BEYOND their trauma.
